Mary, Mary quite.....
Mom and dad came to Canada from England in 1957, and mom knitted this Mary Maxim sweater shortly after arriving. It used to fit my dad who at his strapping hight was 6'1" 200+ pounds. Mom put it in the washing machine recently (not sure what she was thinking) and now it fits her who is considerably smaller (which proves the point that it is wool). In any event, it is a beautiful sweater that has lasted over 50 years.
